The Azure Active Directory integration with Hellonext provides an alternative for your customers or team to login to your Hellonext portal. Users signing in with Azure AD can be added to private boards directly. You can also setup custom rules to handle off-boarding on Hellonext when a user is removed from your AD organization.

To get started, go to Dashboard → Organization Settings → Integrations.

  • Click on Connect in the Azure Active Directory section.

  • Login with you Azure AD. (Only a user with a GlobalAdministrator role can access this. You might need to talk with your IT team to sort this out.)

  • Enable the Contest on Behalf of Organization option. This is a mandatory step for the integration to work precisely and for Hellonext to make authenticated API calls to the Azure platform.

  • The integrations is now enabled! Now, we can customize the configuration for Azure AD on your Hellonext Dashboard.

Here’s how the option to sign in would appear for your users!

If you would like to set only “Continue with Microsoft” as the login option you can enable/disable the required authentication methods. Read more on our help article about Configuring user authentication methods for your portal→

Scope for Hellonext - Azure AD Integration: - This is to fetch details about users getting added/removed in the Azure Active Directory. This in-turn helps in revoking/granting access to Hellonext. 

offline-access - This is used to perform the configured actions, offline, on behalf of the user connected.

  • Now, you can select the private boards that an Azure AD authenticated user will be added to.

  • You can also configure off-boarding settings, so that when an employee leaves your company, their Board/Admin/Member access is automatically revoked on Hellonext.
